New Sidump’r Trailers to Have Air-weigh Scales as Standard Equipment


Sidump’r Trailers, the manufacturers of side-dump trailers, has announced they will make Air-Weigh QuickLoad Trailer Scale a standard feature on all future trailers.

The scale features a touch-screen, icon-based display that shows the weight on the axle group within 300 pounds, as well as an alarm feature.

The scale is manufactured with an LED alarm lamp, that indicates the customer-set threshold for maximum load weight, that the driver can control without leaving the cab.

In many loading situations, the driver is prohibited from leaving the cab for safety reasons.

Sidump’r Trailers General Manager, Jennifer Koepke, said, “Because the scale prevents overloading in the environments where there is no scale at the loading point, we see less abuse and our customers get the maximum life from their Sidump’r Trailers.”
